Ecologists demand a "real" commitment for the coast to be saved from climate change

Ecologists in Action demanded that politicians and the public make a real commitment to reducing the impacts of climate change on the Rocky Coast. Sources from Ecologists in Action say that there are enough "unusable patches and strategies" that citizens have to pay for with their taxes. They call for participation by the Administrations, Conservation Associations, Citizens, Scientists and others.

Environmentalists need to make a real commitment. Without it, "the alarms of scientists and the 2015 commitments made by the United Nations General Assembly will not be of any use to us." They warned that there was a continuing deterioration in seas and oceans, and they had eight years to go before 2030.

Ecologists in Action reminded Roquetas that they had last year awarded black flags for beaches contaminated by "insufficiently purified wastewater discharges" and brackish water from agricultural returns, in reference water from the Balsa del Sapo which is also dumped in the municipality.

Ecologists in Action condemned these discharges in the Prosecutor’s Office last year, mainly those that result from the urbanization in La Envia Golf de Vicar and the Rambla de Las Hortichuelas. Additionally, because of the "black flags", which caused great discomfort in the Consistory's offices, experts from the University of Almeria met with the University of Almeria delegate of Hidralia concession and the municipal secretary, who is also a representative of Poniente Integral Water Cycle Consortium. The idea to visit the Roquetas De Mar treatment plant was born from this meeting.

The organization also celebrated the agreement on the tertiary treatments works at the Adra El Ejido, Roquetas de Mar treatment plant. However, it warned that the coastline of its municipality still has other problems.

EA assured it that the beach quality awards "make up reality" and "distract attention". They also harshly criticize the destruction caused by the cleaning of beaches. "Tons of remains of Posidonia Oceanica, a species that is both protected and endangered, were found. We don't know where the sand will end up, and Costas has been involved in sand translocations that are costly and scandalous.

These movements of sand "destroy coast habitats despite its inutility, since storms year-after-year return to carry the Sand and the Sea Level rises at an alarming rate."

EA is determined to fight against the deterioration in seas and ecosystems that are so important.
